The 1990s were dominated by the rap game. The Wu-Tang Clan, Nas, Eminem and Outkast were some of the music pioneers in a decade in which New Kids on The Block split, Kurt Cobain made shitty Wrangler jeans and fleeces fashionable and President Bill Clinton claimed “I experimented with marijuana a time or two, and I did not like it and did not inhale.”

The 2000s were a time of change. The emergence of dance music took over the music charts, teenyboppers shifted their devastation to the split of N’SYNC, Crocs and Uggs became the new fashion disaster and our first black president was open about his days in Hawaii smoking that Maui Wowie.

Most of all, the 2000s were a dance party. In preparation for Hot In Herre: 2000’s Dance Party with DJs Will Eastman and Brian Billion of No Scrubs this Saturday at the 9:30 Club, let’s review the best dance hits of the 2000s.
